The news in question is that Mary Orton - the chief executive of Waverley Borough Council - is parting company with her office. I make no comment on the way her departure is phrased beyond the observation that the writers of Yes Minister would have been proud of how it has been presented.
meeting with her in 2012, I was left with the distinct impression that she was a person who had little, if any, interest in heritage. While her exit from the local council may not herald the arrival of a more sympathetic administration it is doubtful that whoever fills the seat will be less sympathetic.
